EVALUATION OF TWO KINESCOPES.
STOVER, ROBERT E.; TEAR, DANIEL G.
RESEARCH WAS CONDUCTED TO DETERMINE THE EFFECTIVENESS OF KINESCOPES OVER CONVENTIONAL TRAINING FILMS FOR TRAINING AND TO DETERMINE TO WHAT EXTENT THE CHARACTERISTICS OF A GOOD FILM HAD BEEN INCORPORTATED IN THE KINESCOPES. THIS INFORMATION WAS IMPORTANT TO THE FURTHER USE OF A SERIES OF TELEVISION PROGRAMS THAT HAD BEEN TELECAST TO THE NAVAL RESERVE AND THAT WERE RECORDED ON FILM. A PANEL OF 12 NAVAL RESERVE OFFICERS RATED TWO KINESCOPES BY USING A RATING FORM, AND THEY DETERMINED THE EFFECTIVENESS OF OF EACH PART OF EACH FILM IN COMMUNICATING INFORMATION BY USING A FILM ANALYZER. THE TWO KINESCOPES WERE RATED TO BE AT LEAST AS EFFECTIVE IN THE COMMUNICATION OF INFORMATION AS THE AVERAGE TRAINING FILMS THAT HAD BEEN STUDIED. A PANEL OF OFFICERS GAVE EACH OF THE KINESCOPES A RATED SCORE ABOVE THE MEAN RATED SCORE OF THE CONVENTIONAL FILMS WHICH HAD BEEN STUDIED. RATINGS OF LEARNING FROM INDIVIDUAL SEQUENCES SHOWED THAT THE TWO KINESCOPES WERE EFFECTIVE IN THAT RESPECT. IT WAS RECOMMENDED THAT KINESCOPE RECORDINGS BE USED AS TRAINING FILMS. THE RESEARCH WAS LIMITED BY THE FACT THAT IT WAS CONDUCTED IN A BRIEF TIME PERIOD USING RAPID EVALUATION TECHNIQUES THAT MIGHT NOT HAVE BEEN AS RELIABLE AS TECHNIQUES USUALLY EMPLOYED IN SIMILAR CIRCUMSTANCES.
